reality. >> that was snar patty murray who is more than willing to go off the cliff on january 1st if republicans continue to block an increase in the top income tax rates. she said that back in july and i'm sure many republicans who don't know her, didn't take her seriously then. but as the head of the democratic snoerl campaign committee this year, she just razed the number of rim senators to 20. when patty purry first won her seat in the senate in 1992, there were three woman senators. patty murray is one of the three power senators in the senate, if she's ready to go off the cliff, then she won't be going alone. >> do you think of yourself more as a thelma or a louise? >> well i've got the red hair. it is a noble thing to go off a cliff some time, but maybe it's not the perfect imagery. it's one of those things, i feel like the thing we need to get across to people as lovely as it is to say going off the cliff or whatever, this is a principled stand to make. this is not going off the cliff, you know, wiely e. coyote, it's trying to get the republican party to do the right thing. >

terms of income inequality. >> governor, we're going to have senator patty murray on the show in just a few minutes. in terms of getting this done, what do you think the president needs at this point? does he have all the arrows that he needs to get the tax cuts extended for the middle class and to expire for the upper income? >> he does if he's willing to use them. the part of this, the danger in this appeal, is that sometimes the president's going to have to go back to the same people that he's gining up here and saying you're going to take it a hit. the only way we will get this done. look, i think republicans are softening on increasing revenue, maybe voting for rates but only do it with significant spending cuts, particularly entitlements. it's going to be a quid pro quo. patty murray has to understand that, chuck schumer, all of our progressives and our party has to understand that. he has to make it work. only the president can do that. he has to use some of his arrows on his base. we don't have to get every democratic vote but we have to get more democrats to vote for this tha
